Competition Planner Software - How are the knock out competition draws produced?

For user instructions, click here

Bespoke software is used by LIBC to produce the competition draws:-

This article gives a simple outline of the procedures it uses with the hope that this will help members understand why and how competition draws happen!!


The program has a database of optimised knock out table templates for 2 to 64 teams, e.g.:-

  • - 16 teams


Before the competition allocations can begin, setting up data is entered, these include "Competitors" and "Round Headings".

"Competitors" can be entered in any order and the program can shuffle that order using a random number sequencer to simulate a "manual random draw".

"Round Headings" are entered according to how many rounds are required for the quantity of competitiors. The program will generate the correct quantity of headings if required.


The program stores a knock out matrix based on the appropriate knock out template. The program puts the competitors and the headings into the appropriate boxes to produce the output:-


The output feeds directly into the web site competition pages..
